  1. Chess,

    I loved the theme and outline of your blog. The first thing that caught my eye was all of the great photos you used. They were so colorful and attention grabbing. Another thing is you incorporated the videos into your blog very well, especially the healthcare social media evolution video.

    It was good that you incorporated our readings, as well as outside information and readings in your blogs. I believed cancer is a major thing to have a Facebook page about. Especially now since the rate of cancer is increasing every day. More and more people will want information or support, and Facebook is a great way of receiving both.

    I can’t wait to read more of your blogs. Great job!


  2. Chess, your blog looks awesome! Your facebook header is bold and catching especially with the shadow in front of the Facebook background. You did a good job reviewing how Facebook can be used to raise awareness and you specified the Cancer awareness organization and how they utilize Facebook. Your hyperlinks were important and also helped include the readings. Maybe go into more detail on how Facebook can be used from an outsider or patient but other than that everything looks and sounds great!

  3. Love both your blogs, I think your super creative and very good at formatting your separate pieces of information, you know how to engage the reader throughout your blogs. I especially love the charts you include in your blogs and how you explain them making them making it simple and really easy to understand. I also thought I didn’t like the size font you used but I’m really considering using your formatting techniques a long with the different pieces of outside information, you did a really good job, nice!

  4. I really like your videos and pictures, it makes it a lot more interactive and keeps the readers attention. I would just add a little more personality to the blog- maybe a catchy title or a slogan at the end? You made some great points, I really liked how you went into detail about cancer awareness. Some things to think about may be some more bullets for an easier flow- but other than that great info and graphics!

  5. Chess,

    Your blog looks awesome man; the heading is catchy and good use of the images. You provided a lot of information, and I can’t wait to read more of your work.
